I rarely, if ever, want to bring politics into this space, but I thought I’d share this little tidbit with you.
Just for the hell of it, I decided to target some journeying women on the road to Bowerstone (one of the towns in Fable II) to see if my female character could dance, whistle, pose and fart her way into their hearts. One of them came away impressed and adoring (in a fan sort of way — there’s an info screen that indicated that she thought my character was just really cool).
But the other, a noblewoman, was ready to marry her. My character was thisclose to pulling it off, but there was just one problem — the ring my character was carrying around wasn’t good enough for her.
Fear not, my sword-swinging, rifle-carrying, eyepatch-wearing heroine. Albion’s a big place.
